R. Kelly addresses sexual misconduct allegations on new 19-minute song “I Admit It”

R. Kelly has unveiled a new 19-minute song called “I Admit It” in which he addresses the numerous allegations made against him, including by several young women who say the R&B singer held them against their will, forced them to have intercourse with other women, and controlled how they dressed, what they ate, and when they went to the bathroom.

The song, which R. Kelly first previewed on Instagram Live on Sunday night, sees the singer admit, “I done made some mistake,” but vehemently deny allegations of sexual misconduct. 

“How they gon’ say I don’t respect these women, when all I’ve done is represent (30 years)/ Take my career and turn it upside down, ’cause you mad I’ve got some girlfriends (girlfriends),” he sings. 

At one point in the song, R. Kelly admits to being with “older and younger [ladies]” and also makes reference to the ongoing #MuteRKelly campaign

“I admit I fuck with all the ladies, that’s both older and young ladies (ladies, yeah)/ But tell me how they call it pedophile because that shit is crazy (crazy)/ You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions (opinions)/ But really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion/ Yeah, go ahead and stone me, point your finger at me (stone me, yeah, yeah)/ Turn the world against me, but only god can mute me (against me, mute me).” 

At another point in the song, R. Kelly reveals he was the victim of sexual abuse at the age of 14, singing: “Now, I admit a family member touched me (touched me, touched me, touched me)/ From a child to the age 14, yeah/ While I laid asleep, took my virginity.”
